quote for the day

"...keep in mind that the Republicans' most serious charge revolves around the creation of misleading talking points. Stop and think about that for a moment. Not intentionally breaking laws passed by Congress as in Iran-Contra, not obstruction of justice as in Watergate, not perjury as in the Lewinsky affair. The creation of misleading talking points.

In other words, the most damaging charge for which there is even the wispiest scintilla of evidence is that after the Benghazi attack, some people in the Obama administration were worried the whole thing might make the administration look bad. And that's probably true. But it's not a crime."
Paul Waldman, Scandal Makers


Man, while it might seem that it would be lovely if the Republican Party were to disappear within the next decade, dont fool yourself; they will never disappear. This does not mean that the party wont fall completely apart, and become a clusterfuck of recriminations, backstabbing, and the eating of its own young (and rightly so). But eventually, it will return, and someday be in charge of the government again.

At least, I hope so. Because as bad as they are right now, can you imagine what the nation would be like if we had only one strong choice at election time, regardless of which party it was?
